Hearing and Donuts (Brain and Bagels) Seminar

April 15 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Presenter: Bikalpa Ghimire, Ph.D. student, Xin Huang’s Lab, Department of Neuroscience, University of Wisconsin
Topic: Neural Mechanisms Underlying Spatial Integration & Motion Segmentation

Natural scenes are often complex and contain multiple entities. Regardless of complexity in the natural scene, the visual system performs seamlessly to establish stable perception, recognition, and visually guided behavior. Segregating and integrating features in the visual scene are fundamental functions of vision. The neural mechanisms underlying such functions are long studied in the field of visual and systems neuroscience. However, critical gaps remain. I will present data from the extrastriate visual cortical area MT, a key hub for processing motion and depth cues, and discuss some preliminary and novel findings regarding the role of MT in spatially integrating information to overcome ambiguity and in segregating information to achieve image segmentation.
